The Top Vacation Home Counties in the USA:
According to the most recent NAR Vacation Homes Report (https://cdn.nar.realtor/sites/default/files/documents/2021-vacation-home-counties-report-06-15-2021.pdf), the top 1% of vacation home counties were in 16 states. North Carolina had four vacation counties (Swain,  Alleghany, Macon, Watauga); there were three each in New York (Greene, Sullivan, Hamilton), Vermont (Windham, Bennington, Windsor), Massachusetts (Dukes (Martha's Vineyard), Barnstable, Nantucket), and Michigan (Oscoda, Alcona, Clare); there were two each in Florida (Lee, Collier), Missouri (Hickory, Camden), and Maryland (Garrett, Worcester). Oklahoma, Maine, Arizona, New Jersey, Georgia, New Mexico, Delaware, and Minnesota each had one vacation home county that landed in the top 1% list.

Other notable data points in the report:
+ Homes in "Vacation Counties" sold more than 2 weeks faster than those in "non-Vacation Counties".
+ The median existing home sales price typically rose by 14.2% in vacation home counties, compared to 10.1% in non-vacation home counties.
+ Vacation home buyers are more likely to pay all-cash, and, ... 22% of all existing-home sales in January-April 2021 were cash sales.
+ More people in "Vacation Counties" worked from home when compared to "non-Vacation Counties"

There are nice pictures and graphs that help show and explain the data. You can find the report here: https://cdn.nar.realtor/sites/default/files/documents/2021-vacation-home-counties-report-06-15-2021.pdf

Vacation areas would be wonderful places for home buyers as not only can they have their vacation homes, but also a revenue stream with rentals hen not using it themselves

Hi Ed Silva, and thank you for the comment!

Yes, Cape Cod has traditionally been a great vacation home location. And now it is becoming an alternative for places like The Hamptons for living and working from home. It takes less of time to fly to Cape Cod when compared to getting out of NYC to places like The Hamptons. And, you get more for your buying dollar.

Why move to the Florida heat, when you can vacation all year on Cape Cod in the seasons you're more used to.

Buyers are moving cash to The Cape.
